A seminar on no-till farming will be offered Jan. 3-4 in Choteau, Fort Benton and Shelby.
The focus of this program will be on fertility and crop production issues that have risen after many years of no-till cropping. “This seminar will be an excellent opportunity to learn about continuing successful no-till programs as well as what research is being conducted by state and federal agencies,” says Dan Picard of the county Extension office.
Fertility topics covered will include issues such as how to use in-row placement along with other fertilizer application methods to meet the 2011 crop’s needs, nitrogen volatilization, and how to manage nitrogen fertility to discourage root and crown diseases.

In their final home game of the year, the Cowboys defeated their county neighbor Heart Butte 56-45. That was on Monday, the next evening the homeboys were in Cut Bank where they suffered a 60-46 loss in their last game of 2010.
Graham Grubb put the first points on the board for the game, streaking down the land for the basket. The lead was short lived. Tony Calf Boss Ribs nailed a three pointer to put the Warriors up 2-3
Wyatt Skunk Cap then drilled a jumper and Heart Butte held a 2-5 lead, but not for long.
Clay Winters canned a shot, Ben Moerkerke got inside and scored off a put back, Grubb drilled another basket and Austin Zomer nailed a shot and while it was a one point, 13-12 lead when the buzzer sounded to end the first period, Conrad would never trail again.

The Growth Policy committee met last week and discussed future land use. Karla Breding mentioned that they are getting to a place where they can begin to include the public and get votes from the city on their proposals.
They are considering strongly the proposal of changing the residential zoning of Conrad. Currently there is residential A and B zoning. The Growth Policy committee would like to see the entire town uniform by allowing modular type trailer homes all around the town. With the new zoning, they would hope to set general provisions for the look of the town and would set restrictions on the types of homes being moved in.
This proposal is still in the works and will be discussed further at their next meeting Jan. 26 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Conrad Public Library.
